"Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all of the time, made new." - Ursula K. Le Guin

Almost back in the kitchen...remaking me as well as making bread and tea!

Baking Powder tips

While rummaging the internet I found a starch-free baking powder. Yes, a gluten-free, corn-free baking powder.
Follow this link to the Starch-Free Bakewell Baking Powder:

They also have a safe "Baking Cream" that is vegan and starch free. The original is advocated by King Arthur Flour Company.

Since the smallest amount these products come in is 8oz, here is David Lebovitz's blog post on how to test if baking powder is still good:

Perhaps order a package of each and split with friends? I am...once I can be active in the kitchen again. Will have a firm answer by Nov. 22nd on when and how my wrist will be fixed. Until then witcherly ideas and confections will keep circling 'round in my noggin.

Happy Baking!

Wrist issues still prevail, despite the valiant efforts of physical therapist. Will try to take some photos of the crabapple liqueur and plum spiced brandy and post the recipes.

Back in the Kitchen now

Thanks to physical therapy I'm getting back into the kitchen. My dominant hand sprain back in February (remember winter? ice? snow?) was actually a wrist and forearm fracture. (oops) No wonder it took over six months to heal!

A friend gave me a case of crabapples, planning on crabapple liqueur, brandy, pie and maybe a tart.

Stay tuned and stay cool...

Still the one-handed Wonder

Until then:

Cooking and typing with my dominant hand in brace is an exercise in pain beyond patience.

I'll be back...
